Otherwise, the flavor is really awesome. I like how the hop flavor interacts with the orange peel. This beer was also my driest fermenting to date! So that is exciting...
Thanks for the recipe and the input!
Did you add fruit to this? Should be no pectin at all......on the other hand I did have alot of haze in the bottles, but once they are in the fridge for 72+ hours that will all settle out. It will be semi cloudy due to the wheat.
As the pepper taset is concerned it Could be old peppercorns, not sure about it though
Glad you liked the recipe and as I said before give it time to mature
